DELRAY BEACH, Fla. — The National Association of Intercollegiate Athletics (NAIA) released its annual men’s soccer Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athletes Friday (Dec. 4) as national tournament play neared a close in Delray Beach, Fla. Marygrove senior forward Oneil Robinson walked away as the lone honoree for the Mustangs and one of 382 men’s soccer student-athletes to be named to the coveted academic list.

In order to be nominated by an institution’s head coach or sports information director, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for this honor.

Robinson, a senior from Montego Bay, Jamaica, was named to the Daktronics-NAIA Scholar Athlete team for the first time, adding to an impressive collection of academic honors that includes three United States Collegiate Athletic Association (USCAA) Academic All-American selections.

The senior capped off a four-year career with a 16-point 2015 campaign after recording six goals – one game-winner – while adding four assists. The 16-point season elevates Robinson into fourth place all-time in Marygrove men’s soccer history with 43 career points. Robinson’s 17 goals ranks fourth all-time behind Jordan Berry (70), Abdoulie Jallow (29)and Jad El-Zein (29).

The men’s soccer team finished a historic 2015 campaign with a program-best tying 12 wins as part of a 12-7-1 overall mark and an 8-2-1 record in WHAC play. The stellar record elevated the Mustangs to the program’s first receiving votes nod in a NAIA Coaches’ Poll and a trip to the conference tournament semifinals.
